While She's Here

While She's Here

A Poem by Dominik D. Rites
"

Please, let me love again.

"
She is the in-between
of heaven
and hell,
a devil
and angel
without horns
or halo.
Her wings are black,
beaten,
plucked,
damaged,
but soaring
and opening
in love.
She is a queen dethroned,
her crown
tossed and
broken
without even
a ceremony
or coronation.
Her skin is soft as silk,
wrapped
in layers
around
her lovely flesh.
I was on her shoulders,
high and
low again,
yet I am,
once again,
on her back,
hugging,
and she will never know
that someone
like myself
sees her
and smiles.
Please, give me this.
Allow me
to love
again just
for a while.
While she's here.
I'm afraid,
of our parting.
I'm afraid,
to love,
but I want
this feeling
to last for as long
as life
allows.

I was up writing this last night and I really feel as though my heart was poured out. The person I'm describing in this truly doesn't know how beautiful they are. I feel fluttery today (:

What an amazing poem of love from afar from someone. Who does not even realize they have an admire, to say the least. So romantic, passionate, warm and sincere. Beautiful heartfelt.
